Veneers consist of ultra-thin shells that are applied to the front surface of teeth. Once installed, they will mask cosmetic issues including worn down enamel, discoloration, spacing, alignment and more. With their exceptional performance and ease of use, veneers are quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments available today.
The main benefit of veneers is that they cover up a person’s tooth enamel, which will often become worn down and damaged over time. By serving as a new exterior for the teeth, veneers can significantly improve their appearance overall. Additionally, veneers can be very effective in addressing flaws in the positioning of teeth. These can include problems with spacing and alignment. Veneers are also great for adjusting the shape, contour and thickness of teeth, helping the structures to appear more even.
At Stein Family Dentistry, we offer porcelain veneers and EMAX Brand Veneers. Porcelain is an excellent material for veneers because of its strong performance and its overall similarities to tooth enamel. Since veneers are custom-made using impressions of a patient’s teeth, they fit in seamlessly, and they are exceptional at helping to achieve a natural look.
The veneers we offer are long-lasting, and they should remain intact for many years if proper maintenance and care are provided. They are also built from stain-resistant materials, and they will not become discolored due to the consumption of tobacco products or dark-colored beverages like coffee, wine or juice. They are secured using a strong adhesive, and they should never become loose. Their outstanding durability is another reason that veneers are such a great option.
All veneers are applied in largely the same manner. The process starts with prepping the teeth. This involves removing some of the existing tooth enamel to make room for the veneers. The teeth will also be treated with an acidic etching gel to roughen their surfaces so that the veneers can bond more easily. After the actual veneers have been built, they are applied over the surface of the teeth and secured using an adhesive. Our experts will check the patient’s bite and make sure that the veneers are secure. Teeth that have been treated with veneers can be cared for in the same manner as before. However, the patient will want to avoid using an abrasive toothpaste or hard-bristled toothbrush.
If you want to make major improvements to your smile, veneers could be a great option for you. A visit to Stein Family Dentistry will allow our experts to determine if your teeth can benefit from veneers. Please call us at (509) 747-5586 to schedule an appointment.
Our Happy Patients
“I went in today, after having the same dentist since I was a child. She retired, and Dr. Stein took her place. I was fearful, as I think trust is important in a dental relationship. I met Dr. Stein for the first time, and he put me at ease. Very professional, listened to my concerns, and did a painless filling and other services. I would highly recommend Dr. Stein if you are looking for a new dentist. Glad to see some of the same staff remaining as well.”
“I went in today for an X-ray and exam and I got so much more! Considering my dental insurance hasn’t kicked in yet I knew it would be expensive that being said I didn’t know what all I’d be getting done, when being told that I needed a root canal I was more than nervous about it (concerned about the cost) Dr. Stein Totally worked with my budget and set me up with a payment plan. Throughout my time there he kept saying “let’s get you out of pain first” He got me in a chair right away and took care of the root canal on the spot. I thought that was Quite impressive considering that some places will have you schedule another appointment with them For a later date, so with all that being said I’m very happy with his work even more so, happy that I’ve found a dentist. Feels good to be a part of the family.”
